GUEST,Mike 2002 Obit: Buz Collins (son of Dolly Collins) (36) RE: Obit: Buz Collins - RIP (Aug 2002) 08 Dec 15


My name is Mike Kobernus. I am a writer, living in Norway. Many years ago, I travelled to England to meet with Buz on his longboat. It was quite a trip, and took me a while to find him.

Eventually we did meet, and I ended up buying a guitar from him. He also gave me a copy of his CD, Codebreakers. I still have it, and I still have his guitar.

I got to thinking about him today because of another singer that passed away, many years ago. I was thinking about all the wonderful people in the world who enrich our lives with their talent and passion, and I remembered Buz.

We talked for a few hours, maybe, and he made me tea. I got to sit in the longboat, and listen to him play guitar. He impressed me much with his ability. Years later I still recall his playing style with admiration.

I do hope someone sees this message. This thread has not been commented for a very long time. But I still remember him.
